Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   39572   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6487   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    Further exploratory objectives, please refer to the exploratory end points listed below

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Signed informed consent form.
    2. Patient is ≥18 years of age.
    3. Patient is willing and able to adhere to the protocol requirements.
    4. Patient with diagnosis of MM who has been treated with at least 2 prior lines of treatment, including at least one cycle of high-dose chemotherapy with autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation if the patient was eligible, and exposure to an immunomodulatory imide drug (e.g. lenalidomide and/or pomalidomide), a proteasome inhibitor, and an anti-CD38 antibody.
    (Note: Induction therapy, up to 2 cycles of high-dose chemotherapy with autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and subsequent consolidation and/or maintenance therapy are considered one line of treatment).
    5. At least one of the following subcriteria must be measured in the patient:
    - Serum M-protein greater or equal to 0.5 g/dL
    - Urine M-protein greater or equal to 200 mg/24 h
    - Serum free light chain (FLC) assay: involved FLC level greater or equal to 10 mg/dL (100 mg/L) provided serum FLC ratio is abnormal
    - A biopsy-proven evaluable plasmacytoma
    - Bone marrow plasma cells >10% of total bone marrow cells (>30% if bone marrow plasma cells are the only marker of measurable disease)
    6. Patients previously treated with an anti-SLAMF7 antibody are eligible.
    7. Karnofsky performance status ≥60%. If patient has a Karnofsky performance status <60% (e.g. after a spinal cord injury) but is judged to be medically fit by the investigator, patient is eligible.
    8. Female patients of childbearing potential must:
    a) have a negative pregnancy test (blood) at screening.
    b) either commit to true abstinence from heterosexual contact or agree to use, and be able to comply with, effective measures of contraception without interruption, from screening through 1 year following the IMP infusion. A highly effective method of contraception or birth control (failure rate less than 1% per year when used consistently and correctly) must be practiced. The patient should be informed of the potential risks associated with becoming pregnant while enrolled in this clinical trial. Reliable methods for this trial are: combined (estrogen and progestogen containing) hormonal contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation (oral, intravaginal, transdermal), progestogen-only hormonal contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation (oral, injectable, implantable), intrauterine device, intrauterine hormone-releasing system, bilateral tubal occlusion, sexual abstinence or vasectomized sexual partner. Abstinence is only accepted as true abstinence: when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the patient. (Periodic abstinence [e.g. calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods and withdrawal] are not acceptable methods of contraception.) Postmenopausal (no menses for at least 1 year without alternative medical cause) or surgically sterile female patients (tubal ligation, hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy) may be enrolled.
    c) Agree to abstain from breast feeding during the study participation and for 1 year after the IMP infusion.
    9. Male patients must practice true abstinence or agree to use a condom during sexual contact with a pregnant female or a female of childbearing potential for at least 1 year after IMP infusion, even if he has undergone a successful vasectomy.
